@No idea about this one MM, but whatever I have read most of the complaints do tilt towards "delaying tactics".
CG- take a look over this fact- last year there were nearly 200 results from regional languages. and UPSC is just printing it in Hindi only not in south languages. this was supposed to be an added advantage to Hindi students.
This year only the result is less and i wud blame Mains exam for tat not CSAT.
@RadhaKrishnan- when 3 years back there was an individual subject exam with GS paper, people used to give negative feedback and all discrimination with one or two subject talks. Now for equality they introduced CSAT. and some basic english is required. India is so diverse. suppose one person from Bihar is posted in Tamil Nadu, will he force them to learn Hindi? tat was why a little english was introduced. and maths and english are used for Aptitude test like CAT, GMAT etc. for Administration skills they do have mains exam and interview. Prelims is just to remove the non-serious candidates.
